Last Weekend

We're still trying to recover from our busy weekend. We took advantage of the gorgeous 70 degree weather and spent Saturday at Como Zoo and Sunday at the Minnesota State Fair. It was my first time going to the fair and wow I've been missing some delicious greasy food. I actually felt the baby kick for the first time towards the end of the day. I'm not sure if He-She was enjoying or protesting all those cheese curds. Sylas was a little champ strolling around observing all the people with his newly bespectacled eyes. As for the Zoo, Sylas seemed to like the fiberglass animals better than the real ones.

  1. I can't tell you how much I adore Sylas' glasses. they/he just makes me smile!

  2. We were at the fair on Sunday too! I don't know how we missed you-there weren't that many people there! :)
    Glad you 4 had a good time! Sylas is quite the cutie!

  3. I don't know if you've ever heard the song "Safe & Sound" from Matthew West's new CD "Something to Say." The lyrics are amazing- I have a feeling you'd really love this song.

  4. I have followed your story thru Noemi's site. I am so happy that you have let us into your lifes through your blogs. I hope you continue to let us know how little Sylas is doing, and congrats on the new baby. I hope you will share the blog after the new addition arrives. God bless you and your family.

  5. Like Sylas my 19 months older sons likes fiberglass animals, in fact he is fond of any kind of animal (real or in the form of a toy, statue, etc.). He just got a mishap last week when he tried to disturb a cat feeding her young kitten, but even that didn't lessen his affection towards animals :).


Thank you so much for taking the time to share. I love hearing from you.

P.S. I'm sorry for the word verification step, but oh, my. I'm getting lots of spam.
